What injectors, what injectors...

Hey guys I'm trying to decide between stage 1.5's and stage 2's. I plan on eventually intercooler when the piggy allows of course. Also going to t500 that mug. Any advice would be great! Oh and I tow a lot with the truck. 18k..
Thanks!

mods in sig, and this is what I'da done if I knew then what I know now :

160's instead of the 180's
38r W/ Blank pedestal, and convert to SD style mount & 3" Plenums W/Bellowed upipes

why ? because I don't need the extra power, and I believe the 38r would do better between 1200 rpm and 2100 rpm, and I could use the cheaper SD style bellowed upipes and the larger plenums...all in all a much better solution .... little spendy to begin with, but solid and pretty much bulletproof once on there.......

if you decide to go thatway, you will need to pick up a Passenger side exhaust manifold as they are slightly different.....

usually find them on e-bay fairly reasonable, around $100.00 bux....

If you are even considering stage 2s just go ahead and get a set of hybrids something like a 200/100... That way later if you want more you won't have to buy new Injectors. Not to mention you can make the same power as the stage 2s but without working the injectors as hard

not sure what exactly is different, but there have been write-ups about it....I believe the angle is just enough different that you need it to do the conversion....

and don't pay any attention to the BIGGER IS BETTER injector boys...you'll have all you can do to cool stage I's....

it doesn't matter how much power you have , it matters how much you can USE and keep COOL when towing....towing presents a completely different set of problems.

yes I think so....I've got way more power than I can use, OR keep cool ....our 5er and truck weighs 20,000 + combined gross, (truck is 8600 + trailer is 11,500 + ), and I can pull the Siskyou's or the Grapevine ( 6% grade 13 miles long), and never drop under 60 mph if I want to, @ about 1/2 - 2/3 throttle.........how much more do you need ??

I normally run about 12-18 lbs boost when pulling hard, and have another 10-12 lbs left if I need it...and thats in "Heavy Tow " position

running around empty in "Extreme Position", you can play allkindsa racecar if ya want....stage I's set up properly will almost double what you have now.....
